This Friday, my husband and I are buying our 3rd house. We’re pretty excited about it, but who wouldn’t be?  The house is pretty cool, kind of rustic looking with a gorgeous wrap around deck.

Our House

Pretty cool, huh?

We have a lot of plans for our new house. In fact, out of the three we will have owned, this one has the biggest “honey do” list we’ve ever had. Here are a few of the items we have on our list:

New flooring (I’m hoping for hardwood, but at this point anything new would be better than what’s in there.
Turn Around in the driveway
Chickens (dying to raise some!)
New Windows
Fresh Paint
Landscaping

It doesn’t look impressive, but if I listed out everything, you’d feel as overwhelmed as we do! Don’t worry, we’re going to do it over time, and really try to enjoy this house with our beautiful children. The potential here is amazing, and I see us here for a good 5 years (inside joke – we’ll be here longer than that – I’m just known for getting the moving ‘bug’ about every 5 years. I’ve been told I’m not allowed to move for a good 10 years though). Shouldn’t be a problem!

I hope you’ll stick with me through some of the trials, tribulations, and triumphs that we’ll have over the next few years. If you’re a fellow Pinterest-er, you can follow me there too. I’ve pinned a ton of ideas for the new house, along with a plethora of other things too. Come on over! You can find me at http://www.pinterest.com/azapolya.
